Media notes

Spotless Crake two birds "pit" calling, Otauira Wetland, Rotorua 19/01/20. Parts of the original recording were cut to reduce background noise.

Observation details

A bird called after playback by the boardwalk in the northern region of the wetland. Later another bird called alone and with the first bird about five metres away on the other side of the boardwalk. I caught a glimpse of the first bird as it moved quickly about a metre up in dense vegetation near raupo. Both birds persistently uttered short single calls and the first bird briefly purred a couple of times and made a very short combing call.

Background Species

European Goldfinch - Carduelis carduelis
Silver Gull - Chroicocephalus novaehollandiae
